The Winter months take a toll on my skin not only because it is sensitive, but because my skin is dry and just gets drier during that time. A few things I know I need to keep my skin and face looking great is a very hydrating moisturizer and a good exfoliating product. Recently I was given the opportunity to try a product from Farmacy Beauty, a brand that I have never used before. The New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains with Echinacea GreenEnvy has been an interesting product for me to use the last two weeks and today I’m going to share it with you.
Farmacy New Day Gentile Exfoliating Grains with Echinacea GreenEnvy retails for $30.00 (3.5 oz / 100g), is an innovative cleansing product that has grains that transform into a gentle, foaming exfoliating cream with the addition of water. The New Day cleanser is a potent, all-inclusive skin care treatment. The grains cleanse, exfoliate and clarify in one step for fresh, clear skin. The natural cranberry seeds provide a deep clean to lift away surface debris and promote skin clarity while rice bran powder loosens dry skin cells and absorbs excess oils and surface impurities. A complex of white willow bark, carrot, green tea and marshmallow soothe, protect and calm the skin.
Packaging for this product is interesting… I literally shake out a little bit of the powder onto my hand when I’m ready to use it. The product is easily dispensed and I like that there is really no mess to using it. It is a powder like cleanser, which is something I have used before… but it still has an interesting flair to it.
This interesting cleanser is powered by Echinacea GreenEnvy – which is a unique patent-protected variant of Echinacea Purpurea. GreenEnvy contains the highest known concentration of the phytochemical Cichoric Acid, a potent natural antioxidant which helps to protect and firm the skin by inhibiting the enzymes that break down collagen. Cichoric Acid also normalizes the skin pigmentation process to promote a more evenly toned complexion.
Mark Veeder is the pioneer plantsman behind the discovery and patenting of Echinacea GreenEnvy™, a unique variant of Echinacea Purpurea. He has partnered with farming expert Robert Beyfuss to cultivate the plant in upstate New York. Together, they are creating jobs and changing lives in their local community.
The scientists and lab behind Farmacy are innovative experts in cosmetic formulation and research, and seek out nature’s most novel yet effective ingredients.
Echinacea GreenEnvy™ is transported only two hours to the lab, where it undergoes a cold pressing process, similar to cold pressed juices.
When you add water to the cleanser and stir it up with your finger in the palm of your hand, the cranberry seeds reveal themselves in the mixture. I then apply the cleanser/exfoliator to my face softly and lightly rub into my face cleaning away the dirties and exfoliating at the same time. The cleanser is very gentle and I like that when I am done cleaning, my face feels invigorated. Washing it off is easy and it will remove with water. After the application and removal, my face feels like it is not only clean but soft and even moisturized. I like it. It’s a bit different than what I am used to but I have enjoyed using this product the last couple of weeks. A little product goes a long way and since I have sensitive skin – I can’t use this product every day. I don’t blame the product necessarily – my darn skin is just so finicky so I use this product about once a week.
While this is not a traditional cleanser and exfoliator that I would use, I’m very impressed. The concept is really nice and the formula is very gentle on my sensitive skin. I love that my face feels so clean and feels airy and soft like I had just had a facial. I’m pretty impressed with this little bottle and what’s included in the package. I think it will definitely be something that I will continue to use as a part of my skin care routine for a great feeling of clean.
